Mike Tyson, 54, returns to the ring.
Mike Tyson will challenge Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition match, an eight-round preparation match.
Iron Mike had hinted at his return a few months ago when in a short video posted on his Instagram profile he was seen during a training session with his coach.
At the end of the video he turns to the camera and growls at the camera: “I'm back”.
His last meeting dates back to 2005.
Tyson only last April declared that he wanted to play some matches for charity.
At the time, Iron Mike had talked about a maximum of 3-4 rounds:
“My intention is to get back in shape to be able to support 3-4 round matches for charity.
Some of these performances help homeless people and people with drug problems like me ”.
But now Tyson seems to have raised the bar.
The meeting with Roy Jones Jr, in fact, will be eight rounds. Still an exhibition match, okay, but still a meeting that will certainly not be a walk in the park.
It won't be a walk in the park for Tyson and it definitely won't be a walk in the park for Roy Jones Jr. either.
In short: Tyson has managed, once again, to make people talk about himself. Next time he will, once again, from inside a ring. (Source: Ansa ).
